I received my PhD in computer science at the University of California, Irvine under supervision of professor Michael Carey.  As a member of Information Systems Group (ISG), I have been mainly working on the Apache AsterixDB project.

 

Research Interests

I am interested in building and optimizing systems for storing, processing and managing intensive amounts of data, along with performance evaluation of Big Data systems and Big Data benchmarking.

 

Projects

Apache AsterixDB: A new, full-function BDMS (Big Data Management System) with a rich set of features to store, manage, and analyze large volumes of semi-structured data.

 

Hyracks: A data-parallel runtime platform designed to perform data-processing tasks on large amounts of data using large clusters of shared-nothing commodity machines.
